According to police, Glen Hannan was picked up at Church Street Park Tuesday morning after communicating with a police officer pretending to be a 15-year-old girl from Kingston. Hannan asked the officer to share “selfies and whatever you want” on June 8th.

On June 9th, Hannan continued the conversation with the officer on the app, revealing he was at Church Street Park. When police approached Hannan at the park, he said he was there to meet an 18-year-old girl so she could show him where to go fishing.

He also admitted to telling the 15-year-old that “they were all good” when asked if he had condoms and that he goes on the app for “dirty fun.”

Hannan is charged with corruption of minors, among other charges.
